Well I tried the ideas from the list.  If I just opened the print dialogue and pressed enter without any tabbing, the document did print.  If I tried alt-p, nothing happened.  If I routed the JAWS cursor to the print button and pressed the mouse key, it did print.  It is still a bit strange to me, but your ideas have provided some work arounds.  Smile.

Did you try using the JAWS cursor? I don’t know why the print button wasn’t accessible tabbing around, but since it’s a standard print dialogue, this cursor should still help you move the mouse pointer to the correct position and click on it.

Hello Everyone,

 

This has now happened twice to me, so I am wondering if there is a solution.  Today I wanted to print a recent Amazon purchase invoice.  I logged in, got to the invoice, and found the print button.  I then pressed enter on print and the usual print dialogue came up.  My Canon 210 series printer was listed as the default printer.  When I used the tab key to try to find the print button, I could not find it.  I did find the cancel button.  It does not help to just press enter without tabbing to the print button.  I contacted AIRA and the agent was able to activate the print button for me.  I had a nearly identical situation occur last month with making a copy of a cancelled check at my online banking page.  The fact that this has occurred twice at two different web sites makes me wonder if I have some setting wrong or why JAWS is not letting me get to the button.  Any ideas on what is going on and how to resolve this?

 

I am using Windows 10, Google Chrome, and JAWS 2021.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

Barbara
